Once I Was A Beehive Movie: Go See It

I didn't expect to like the movie Once I Was A Beehive and likely would not have made an effort to see it. So, I am happy that someone in the know thought to send me a link so that I could prescreen the movie from the comfort of my own home (with hopes, of course, that I would tell you about it.)

That link sat in my message box for quite sometime, as I personally had little interest in seeing the movie even for free. I didn't have the time for such silliness I thought. Until one night a few weeks ago when I had three of my granddaughters over for a sleepover and needed to figure out ways to entertain them…

I announced that I had a secret link to a super cool Mormon movie that wasn't even in the theaters yet – for girls! That didn't impress them. I then insisted that they would like it and got things set up so that I could stream it on the “big screen” via Apple TV. I love torturing my grandkids!

It didn't take long before they were completely engaged in watching Once I Was A Beehive – me too! 

Yes, it was totally corny. Yes, it was major stereotyping of Mormons and what our girls camp are like (although pretty close). And yes, as a former, two-time Young Women’s President and mother of three daughters it totally hit home and brought tears to my eyes.

This past Sunday those same granddaughters came over for dinner. Guess what they begged me to watch? You guessed it, their now favorite movie!

Go see it! It opens in select theaters August 14th. I promise, this is one silly Mormon movie that will wiggle its way into your heart. We can’t wait until it comes out on DVD – it’s a winner!
